London floods: Heavy rain causes chaos on travel services

Many travelers have seen their journey disrupted as some roads were forced to close, including the A41 at Hendon Way where a motorist became stranded after crossing the flood waters.

Rail services are also heavily affected, with many currently severely delayed or partially suspended.

The flash flooding comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning in south-east England for heavy rain.

The warning should last until 3 p.m., but there are suggestions to wait flood and severe travel disruptions and plan ahead to avoid problems.

The rain is expected to dissipate in the afternoon with a chance of severe thunderstorms later in the day.
